7 Reasons Why Teachers Are So Important

Teachers do so many things that go unnoticed.

7 Reasons Why Teachers Are So Important
SPED Support 4 Parents

Teachers are a crucial factor in all of our lives. They shape and mold each and every person into who they become, intentionally or not. Teachers don't get enough credit for the hard work they continuously do during school, and after. Here are seven reasons why teachers are so important.

1. Teachers work around the clock.

Often, it is assumed that when a teacher finishes their school day, their work is over. A teacher's work never really truly ends. They often times don't leave school until much later than students, and when they do, they have papers to grade and meetings with parents.

2. Everything a teacher does is to help better their students.

Teachers learn how they can help each and every kid they come in contact with. Not just educationally, but emotionally. A teacher can help students grow and mature into better people. Young children learn from what they see, and they will often follow a teacher's lead.

3. Teachers don't accept failure, and they push you to better yourself.

Everyone has felt like they weren't enough or that they absolutely could never learn that hard math equation. Teachers don't accept "I can't" as an answer, and they help you get through your roadblocks.

4. Teachers have patience.

When parents aren't around, teachers are the ones who have to take care their child. Anyone with kids knows, they can be ALOT of work. Not to mention they have more than 10. Can you imagine having 10 children? It seems like a hefty amount of work, and that's what a teacher does. They have to have enough patience to help and care for many children. That deserves a trophy on its own.

5. Teachers stay positive.

Even among the crazy, chaotic and loud days, teachers know how to stay positive and not let it get to them.

6. Teachers don't teach so that someone will recognize them; they teach because they want to help others.

It isn't super common that teachers get recognized for all the hard work they do. I have found that it can be really hard being a teacher because many people don't see all of the hard work that actually gets put into it.

7. Teachers can be the only sense of stability for some children.

Children that come from hard homes often look up to their teachers. Their teachers make a huge difference in their lives and sometimes the teacher has absolutely no idea. Teachers spend a lot of time with kids, sometimes even more than their parents do. Their personality and characteristics rub off on kids who don't have someone else to look up to.

Let's all take a moment to appreciate the teachers around us!

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
